Mike Sutton, an academic in Nottingham, has fabricated and falsified evidence, to claim Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace stole the idea that evolution by natural selection can produce new species of plants and animals. His series of publications has evaded peer review, and should never have been published, but they were and now they’re feeding falsehoods into the scientific literature. Sutton has been misleading the public, including lying to Perthshire primary school children, and providing the means to defraud the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Sutton has been shown to be incompetent, vindictive, and ignorant. He does not follow academic protocol, and uses sock puppetry to promote himself, and falsely defame others. Refusing to debate, he regularly abuses the reputations of notable scientists, living and dead, and maligns all refuters. His editors and employer university refuse to act ethically; he should be investigated for misconduct, and his papers retracted. Instead, he has been allowed to continue, while his works are being cited, also making this a matter of protecting the scientific literature. More people need to be made aware that such a loophole exists, in a system reliant on trust; authorities and publishers need to be reminded of their ethical duty in protecting the historic record.
Sutton knows that experts from the fields of science history and evolutionary biology have comprehensively refuted his assertions (see links below). Not only this, but almost every claim regarding myth busting (upon which he prides himself) is also invalid, falsified by his poor and lazy research. His data is often erroneous because of faulty collection, which is astonishing, when his facile response to the truism that "nothing in science is 100%", was to make a imbecilic show of the certainty of seeing words on a page. Words are just groups of symbols without meaning, and that is where Sutton also fails, in applying logical interpretation. Instead of engaging with the subject like a responsible academic, he runs and hides behind his dean of school, the committee of the local heritage group he has conned, and his family. He is a disgrace to his profession. His response to any challenge is usually that there is a conspiracy that has been operating in evolutionary biology, to maintain Darwin's place since 1860. That anyone interested in Darwin wishes to maintain their livelihood (if you have ever seen the process involved in applying for research funding, you'd know how irrelevant his statement). Furthermore, because he made a direct personal accusation, I can state that any writing of mine on Darwin has only ever been outside any contractual position - easily checked, look at the acknowledgements where funding bodies ought to be mentioned. Plus, I was not on a salary or contract or any other form of income prior to his initial attacks, and have not been in the two years spent investigating him since. He calls people, followers, or supporters. Science is not a sports club. You form conclusions, and do not sign petitions and buy souvenirs. Bloody idiot. See for yourselves, what a complete failure he really is,
